Mukherjee, M.

Exelus, Inc., Fairfield, New Jersey

Mitrajit Mukherjeeis the President and Founder of Exelus. His research on engineered zeolites led to the development of the breakthrough solid-acid alkylation catalyst ExSact, which is being licensed as the K-SAAT™ process by KBR. He recently developed a novel mixed-metal oxide catalyst (ExOlt) to produce propylene from propane, which is being licensed as the K-Pro process by KBR. Prior to starting Exelus, he held positions at Catalytica and Lummus. He earned a BS degree in chemical engineering from the India Institute of Technology and an MS degree from Southern Illinois University.
